I saw this was covered last month in the mailing lists, and the
recommendation was to upgrade binutils.
Well heres the error first

bash-2.02$ make
g++  -L/usr/local/lib/mysql  -o ffind config.o sql.o query.o parseword.o
/cygnus/CYGWIN~1/H-I586~1/i586-cygwin32/bin/ld: cannot open -lmysqlclient: No
ch file or directory
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [ffind] Error 1
bash-2.02$ ld --version
GNU ld 2.9.5

now i have created /usr/local/lib/mysql and put the lib file in there, it
refuses to fine ANY of the lib files... i tried including the ones supplied
in the full.exe file.

Any suggestions ?
(note: i need to get this working today, or abandon it, dont you hate project
deadlines ?)
